Decent shoes helped, but we did a walk through the Hoyt and saw all the beautiful redwoods, lots of flowers and new shoots popping up. It was pretty magical... To get there we took the tram and walked up, then at the other end waited...More

To find a place that's about a five-minute drive from NW Portland, where one can walk daily and feel transported to a non-urban environment is a treasure indeed. My husband and I (and our dogs) love, love, love this place. There are plenty of trails...More

We have been to numerous Arboretums throughout the country. Most were much more formal than the one here.There were some paths if you want to walk the are. To be honest it just looked like a wooded area to us, unless we missed something.

A great place for a slow, peaceful walk. The Vietnam War Memorial is very impressive. Best done on weekdays.

Visited in April, the Arboretum was blooming. The different sections of Magnolia varieties in full bloom were spectacular. The ground cover of ferns and Trillium was impressive. The paths are easy to walk and well marked. The visitor center people were very welcoming and full...More

Look at their website for an adult tour, otherwise you will be just wandering around looking at trees but not really taking anything in. If you can not do that , stop by the visitor center and get the "kids" map which has some loops...More

We visited on a drizzly day, and it was still wonderful. Follow the map for some easy but beautiful hiking trails. Lots of plant life with markers to help you identify. Easy "hikes" with little to no elevation changes. Even in the rain there was...More

This expanse of parkland is what ever person living or visiting Portland needs to explore. There is so much to offer: Massive trees, beautiful seasonal blooms, winding trails, and great interpretive centres. Though I would recommend straying away from outdoor adventures in the rain, Hoyt...More

This is a great place for an urban hike. Many trails snake through the park, and you can visit the Japanese or Rose Gardens while you're there.
